Found site on ukcampsite.Co.Uk we booked just for the weekend but decided to stay 10 days. Lovely quiet site, minimal facilities but more that adequate. Electric to all pitches. Only a mile for a quiet coved beach and golf course. Ideal if you want a quiet get away. Brilliant for star gazing having dark sky status in the area. Not all pitches are level but site have blocks to use. Site is very well maintained and has pretty flower beds.

This is our 2nd visit to Knockschool Camping and Caravanning Park in Monreith and we had the most wonderful weather which allowed numerous visits to historic places of interest and of course the Monreith Sands Beach for a wonderful dip in the hot weather. Hubby grew up visiting Monreith with his parents and as a result we are hoping to continue the tradition and visit on a regular basis. We booked last minute on this occasion and thankfully accommodated to our relief! Our visit was greeted with a big warm smile and welcome (and of course were able to buy a few pots of Gran's amazing jam which we later enjoyed with baguettes or hot toast and hot chocolate - just delicious!).

We were shown to our tenting pitch and set up our 6 man tent to start enjoying our holiday break. The site is very well maintained, beautiful lay out. Toilets, showers etc although basic are very clean and tidy. We were able to take our jack russell again with us who also enjoyed his time there immensely. Pauline, hubby and son were wonderful hosts and were always willing to help if needed. We had a great laugh and relaxed completely.

We hope to return next year and if possible stable our horses nearby - either way this is a wonderful site, you are left in peace to enjoy your holiday and the hosts are always around to help if needed. View is fantastic - what more can you ask for.

We have just spent 2 weeks at this site during the wettest August ever registered in Dumfires and Galloway and because of the site and its owners we had a wonderful time!

The site is clean, tidy and beautifully presented. Pauline and John (the owners) put a lot of time and effort into ensuring their site and facilities are of the highest standard. The toilets, shower and washing up facilities are basic but immaculate. They are cleaned regularly throughout the day.

We initially had some misgivings about the proximity to the road which seemed to be very busy, however this turned out to be the local farmers making the most of a weather window and although there were still busy times on the road it wasn't continuous noise.

The surrounding area is well worth visiting with everything you could ask for on a family holiday - walks, sandy beaches, cycling, golf course and lots of local history.

Pauline and John are extremely friendly and very helpful. They were always around for a chat and to offer ideas of places to visit.

Our 11 year old son said it was the 'Best site he'd ever stayed on' (and he's stayed on a few now!) and our 19 month old just loved the freedom of being able to run up and down the field safely(the camping field being separated from the road by a wall).

This is definitely a site we will be recommending to others and will return to ourselves.

Booked for 7 nights stayed for 11 would have stayed longer if Pauline or Gordon would have adopted us.Our first visit to the site but it won't be our last. A quiet beautifully kept site all credit to the hard work of Pauline and Gordon. We were surrounded by beautiful views, birdsong, sheep,cows and ponies. The area is so unspoilt and not ruined by commercialism it didn't take us long to settle into a much slower pace of life. We had one of the cheapest but most enjoyable holidays ever and enjoyed visiting places like Newton Stewart, Stranraer, Cairnryan, Wigtown, Sandhead and the Mull of Galloway. We absolutely loved the Isle of Whithorn, Portpatrick and Garlieston. We also enjoyed our visits to Monreith Animal World and the Bladnoch Distillery and had some great meals at the Bladnoch Inn. We didn't want to leave the area or the site.Don't forget to try some homemade jam which Paulines mam makes and try some of the cream of galloway icecream sold on site. Gordon told us a lot about the history of the old school and about the area and even though he is always busy finds time to have a chat, he also makes some lovely handmade cards which you should look at.

We have been coming here for well over 30 years since the kids were small and now that the eldest is 50! we thought it time to share this great site with a wider circle of fellow campers.

Owners John, Pauline & their son Gordon, are very helpful & friendly and the grounds are so well kept it's like camping on their front lawn. The toilets are basic but adequate and always very clean. There is a network of quiet country roads ideal for cycling and visiting the surrounding villages and ports with good restaurants and pubs. There is much for mountain bikers, sea anglers, birdwatchers, walkers etc. And Scotlands Booktown, Wigtown is only a few miles away.

St.Medan's Golf Club is within a quarter mile, is usually quiet and ideal for beginners. The green fees are very reasonable with a further discount for Knock School campers.

Dogs are welcome and there are good walks for them nearby not to mention runs on the beaches.

Caravans are not in rows but well spaced out round the perimeter of the site looking into the grassy centre so that if your children are playing there it is easy to keep an eye on them.

Blackpool it is not - but for those who want to get back to a more leisurely pace of life this

Should do the trick.

Having stayed at this site 15 years ago as a teenager I was delighted to find it to be exactly the same. The site is well presented and the owners are helpful and friendly. The old School toilet block and shower are basic but perfectly adequate and are always clean and tidy. The area for tents is small (space for 4 tents) but is sheltered. The surrounding area is beautiful and the site is ideally situated, being near to several beaches and local places of interest.
